The Power of the Russian Language :)

Okay so I currently reside in Shanghai. On two separate occasions I said good bye in Russian (Da Svidanya) to Russians, and they practically went from 50% neutrality to 100% absolute amazement plus ultimate adoration. It’s like just one simple Russian phrase is enough to make their day. And I enjoy making people happy with simple acts of kindness :)

LESSON OF THE DAY: Learn, speak and love russian

I was tagged by degas-ballet to list 5 random facts about myself and to tag 10 other people to do the same.

-I just saw a live performance of Svetlana Zakharova’s “revelation” last Saturday -My favorite book is “How the Steel is Tempered”by Nikolai Ostrovsky. -I am trying to teach myself Russian. -My favorite ballerina is Maria Alexandrova, my favorite ballerino is Matthew Golding. -I am reading “War and Peace” by Leo Tolstoy.

Here I tag iamthepirouetteprincess, smolyanynova, pas-de-ballet, dysphoricsylph and those who want to do the same. :)

New ballet, or old ballet?

These days, people are telling me “this song is so old, get a new one”. Or “iPhone 4 is so out of date, get a iPhone 5s”. I get how people are naturally inclined to like new things. But yesterday at the Mona Lisa Ballet Gala, even though I got visually ambushed by modern pieces like “Casimir Colors” and “Le Parc”, I still see myself secretly clinging on to the classical pieces such as the Black Swan PDD and the Giselle Act II PDD. I understand choreographers these days try to devise new ballet pieces to keep up with the public’s need for new things, but I really hope that ballet companies would keep on showing classical pieces like “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty”, because how could there be NEW BALLET when OLD BALLET no longer exists?
